I recently made these bracelets for the Hunger Games Swap. The first one I made cutting a sterling silver napkin ring in half. I hand-stamped the phrase on the silver and wired it to a replacement watchband I had lying around.

The second bracelet was based on an item on my partner's Pintrest. I used a brass arrow stamping and leather cord. I have lots of pics of this one, because it's hard to see it properly.

I haven't posted on this board for a long time. It feels good. Smiley Let me know what you guys think!

Your partner will be rocking those cool pieces soon!

I love that you incorporated the "real or not real" line.

Did you see that Suzanne Collins posted today a bit about the upcoming movie?


p.s. I did several HG themed jewelry pieces awhile back, and loved every minute of it. It's such an inspiring trilogy!

I haven't read The Hunger Games, but the bracelets are pretty awesome.

I just saw the huger games yesterday! I loved the movie and when I got out I said I would have to make one of these!  Where did you find the arrow and the metal? Did you use a tutorial? Its amazing!

Hey! I can do that! :3

Coveting that arrow bracelet. Also love the rough look of the first one. Very cool.

That arrow bracelet is amazing! I would LOVE to have one, where did you get the arrow for it? Awesome job on both of them! <3 THG!

Very nice designs. Very intricately done. Really a work of art. Every piece is a beautiful creation which is unique and elegant.
